We promise to view each company in which we invest not as a stock certificate to be traded in the short term, but as a long term investment in a business.
We promise to “eat what we cook” and invest side-by-side our clients, owning substantially the same stocks as you do in order to align our interests together.
We promise to seek to invest in companies that provide steady and growing dividends, to dig deep for value and to assess risk through our top-down macro view.
Investments involve risk. Principal loss is possible. ETFs may trade at a premium or discount to their net asset value. Redemptions are limited and often brokerage commissions are charged on each trade which may reduce returns.
The Fund invests in dividend paying companies and may hold securities of companies that have historically paid a high dividend yield. Those companies may reduce or discontinue their dividends, thus reducing the yield of the Fund. Low priced securities in the Fund may be more susceptible to these risks. Past dividend payments are not a guarantee of future dividend payments.
Value Investing Risk. The Sub-Adviser may be wrong in its assessment of a company’s value, and the stocks the Fund owns may not reach what the Sub-Adviser believes are their true or intrinsic values. The market may not favor value-oriented stocks and may not favor equities at all, which may cause the Fund’s relative performance to suffer.
Foreign Investment Risk. Returns on investments in foreign securities could be more volatile than, or trail the returns on, investments in U.S. securities. Investments in or exposures to foreign securities are subject to special risks, including risks associated with foreign securities generally. Those special risks may arise due to differences in information available about issuers of securities and investor protection standards applicable in other jurisdictions; capital controls risks, including the risk of a foreign jurisdiction imposing restrictions on the ability to repatriate or transfer currency or other assets; currency risks; political, diplomatic and economic risks; regulatory risks; and foreign market and trading risks, including the costs of trading and risks of settlement in foreign jurisdictions.
New Fund Risk. The Fund is a recently organized management investment company with limited operating history and track record for prospective investors to base their investment decision.
There may be periods during which the Fund is unable to find securities that meet its value investment criteria. If the Fund is selling investments or experiencing net subscriptions during those periods, the Fund could have a significant cash position, which could adversely impact the Fund’s performance under certain market conditions and could make it more difficult for the Fund to achieve its investment objective.
Some sectors of the economy and individual issuers have experienced particularly large losses due to economic trends, adverse market movements and global health crises. This may adversely affect the value and liquidity of the Fund’s investments especially if the fund concentrates its investments in the securities of a particular issuer, industry or sector.
Investing in mid-capitalization companies may be more vulnerable to adverse market or economic developments and have greater volatility or trade in lower volume than large-capitalization companies.
